The Association of Chemical Engineering Graduate Students (ACES) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of graduate students in the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Washington. ACES works to provide opportunities for professional development and outreach outside of those typically encounter by graduate students. ACES organizes and hosts a symposium every year where representatives from industry get to meet future research leaders and learn about the exciting work being done in ChemE@UW. ACES works closely with the UW’s MESA program to reach out to local students and get them excited about science and engineering.
2014-15 ACES Officers:
Jac Clark is developing and characterizing thin-film copper zinc tin sulfoselenide (Cu22ZnSn(S,Se)4) photovoltaic cells with the aim of improving efficiency.
Professional Development Chair
Jared Shadish is using synthetic polymer scaffolds to study cell fate and to create implantable biomaterials.
Alexey Gilman is studying the fundamental process parameters which govern lab-scale bioreactors for methanotrophs.
Matt Murbach works on new ways of characterizing battery health using nonlinear impedance and data science.
Master’s Student Representative
Social Media Chair
